I love watching “how it’s made” videos. This one takes us through the manufacturing process of Cathay Pacific Airways’ new A350 aircraft which landed for the first time in Hong Kong yesterday.

Cathay is the sixth airline to fly Airbus’ sleek wide body introduced in 2014.

The Cathay A350-900 feautres a three class layout with 280 seats in all, including 38 Business Class seats convertible to fully lie-flat beds, 28 in Premium Economy seats and 214 Economy seats..

Cathay has a total of 48 A350 XWB aircraft on order, including 22 A350-900s and 26 of the larger A350-1000s. Cathay’s new A350-900 will begin long-haul operations later this year after a preliminary period of regional service.
